White Christmas

The sun is shining, the grass is green/The orange and palm trees sway/There's never been such a day/In Beverly Hills, LA/But it's December the 24th/And I'm longing to be up north/I'm dreaming of a white Christmas...

Immersion Blender

Finally used this to make an asparagus soup (it was a birthday present from September). It's kind of amazing. My new favorite kitchen toy!
